Long-haired preachers come out every night,
Try to tell you what's wrong and what's right;
But when asked how 'bout something to eat
They will answer with voices so sweet:

Chorus:
You will eat, bye and bye,
In that glorious land above the sky;
Work and pray, live on hay,
You'll get pie in the sky when you die.

The starvation army they play,
They sing and they clap and they pray
'Till they get all your coin on the drum
Then they'll tell you when you're on the bum:

Holy Rollers and jumpers come out,
They holler, they jump and they shout.
Give your money to Jesus they say,
He will cure all diseases today.
If you fight hard for children and wife
Try to get something good in this life
You're a sinner and bad man, they tell,
When you die you will sure go to hell.

Workingmen of all countries, unite,
Side by side we for freedom will fight;
When the world and its wealth we have gained
To the grafters we'll sing this refrain:

You will eat, bye and bye,
When you've learned how to cook and to fry.
Chop some wood, 'twill do you good,
And you'll eat in the sweet bye and bye.

"Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of true love
Most of the time they're sitting and crying at home
One of these days they know they gotta get going
Out of the door and into the street all alone"

Reserve me a table for three

Paid my money to a crooked judge
Set out to find an honest man
That's how I came to be in Boston
Looking like I am

NICE!

I'll get back to work on this parting note:

Can't talk to me without talking to you
We're guilty of the same old thing
Talking a lot about less and less
And forgetting the love we bring

You too. Quick question before you go:

Think Johny will join Edgar in this group? Check out some of the players, featuring an incomparable bassist:

Now that you've deceived me
and played my name around
and hung those nasty flyers
on all the buidings in town

Dribble my possessions
in a ring around the earth
and bought and sold my self-control
for less that it was worth

now I know the reason
that I'm feeling so forlorn.....

I'll pick you up at 8, as usual
listen for my horn....

Los Lobos The Big Ranch Lyrics


We all looked so happy
When we climbed up on the bus
Berto waved a hand from his seat and said
"Good to have you, come ride with us"

"I got sweet water and a loaf of bread
Should last us about half a day
But you can't have more then a sip of wine
'Cause we have to stay up most of the way"

Laying on a beat old sofa
On the porch when nights were hot
Eating instant mashed potatoes
From a big old iron pot

Never had much to worry about
Slept the night under a bunch of stars
Now all the doors got fifteen locks
And the windows are covered up with bars

[Chorus:]
Let's go down to the big ranch
The big ranch, the big ranch
Let's go down to the big ranch
The big ranch, the big ranch
Let's go down to the big ranch
The big ranch, the big ranch
Let's go down to the big ranch
The big ranch, the big ranch

Read in the paper just the other day
That the city's now full of guns
Whatever happened to the simple days
When the children could just play and run

I couldn't believe on that New Years Day
Julia turned around to John and said
"This year we're gonna get us a Colt 45"
"Keep it near us under the bed"

[Chorus]

The Word

The word's out on the street
Around everyone you meet
"Things are not the way they used to be"

There's a feeling in the air
A dark cloud of despair
That hides our hearts
And blinds our eyes to see

They say that it's a shame
That all we do is blame
And never treat ourselves with dignity

What would we do
Without a hand to hold onto
With no one to call out to
What if we could
Behave like sisters and brothers
Like the good book says we should

[Chorus:]
It's time, time, time
We try so hard to find
But time has no mercy on me
Just take a look at love
On the wings of a dove
Gives us everything we want for free

What will you say or do
When a child asks of you
What kind of world have you left here for me?

Too many sleepless nights
Too many questions why
This is not the way it's supposed to be

What happened to
The land, the trees and the rivers
Some have now all gone away
What happens if
We see them as sisters and brothers
Like the good Lord says we should

[Chorus]

There's a word on the street
From everyone you meet
Peace is the only way for us to be

There's a feeling in the air
Do away with this despair
Let's hear our hearts
And open our eyes to see

What would we do
Without a hand to hold onto
With no one to call out to
What if we could
Behave like sisters and brothers
Like the good book says we should

Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall, you fall alone
If you should stand, then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way, I would take you home

The Squirming Coil of sunset
I keep within my reach
Tried yesterday to get away
and hitchhiked to the beach

I saw Satan on the beach
trying to catch a ray
He wasn't quite the speed of light
and the squirming coil
it got away....

and that's why I never really got phish - their lyrics never really did anything for me and the few shows I saw left me yawning. Always kind of felt like attending Up With People in a sea of pathcouli (although I like Trey's work w/ Oysterhead). Believe it if you need it...

i think they did it on purpose to spoof and be amused with some fans- alot of inane verses in most of their material, but I've heard some awesome SQCoil jams,
but please who can argue with the following 2 >>

Knock in the brass tacks, cover up your tracks Jack,
You ain't nowhere till you can pay your own way back.
What else do you lack to make it right,
But cats down under the stars tonight.
